Mesotherapy is a procedure widely used all over the world for the treatment of various injuries, skin and body problems, and some aesthetic concerns. Mesotherapy was invented by Dr. Michel Pastor in 1952.
Mesotherapy involves medicines injected into the middle layer of the skin. It targets fat tissues. Micro-injections supported with vitamins, minerals and enzymes are delivered directly to the mesoderm. Using this technique, active ingredients that are very beneficial to the skin can be injected into the areas where they are most needed. In addition, substances that can break down cellulite with the same method can also be injected into the area.

When Should Mesotherapy Be Started?
If mesotherapy is to be applied for skin rejuvenation, it can be applied from the late twenties, when the natural aging begins. The production of collagen and elastin in the skin slows down during this period.
Dead skin cells do not shed as fast as before and the reproductive cycle of new skin cells may decrease slightly. Such physical changes are usually seen in the twenties, thus, mesotherapy can be applied to almost everyone in this period.
Mesotherapy treatment usually starts as one session at ten-day periods in the first month. For maintenance treatments, one session is required every six to twelve weeks. Patients may want immediate results, but they should be aware that the entire treatment can be spread over a long period with maintenance and that single mesotherapy treatments should be repeated twice a year after the first session.
